I do not usually write critical reviews and shall start by saying that Mr Pajak is clearly a reasonably skilled author, the book is well written for t..Show More »he most part. However, I did not enjoy it beyond the first few chapters.
There is too little action for my taste but there is plenty of logistical planning and a lengthy weapons inventory check which runs on (and on) which will probably appeal to weapons enthusiasts.
The one thing that aggravated me throughout the story, more than anything else, was the fact that the victims of this disease are infected crazy people BUT they are referred to as creatures and at one point in the story, the main character says he can see a man slumped over in a car but he can't tell if 'it is human'. Well, excuse me but if they are infected people and not zombies, then they are all human!
There is limited female activity in the book, his wife who dies at the start, a lesbian couple and one other woman who is mentioned a couple of times but none of the women play much of a part in the story.
All in all it is pretty much a male strategy fest.
